A federal-court jury reached a verdict in the Apple-Samsung patent lawsuit we’ve been telling you about for the past couple of months. The outcome was a mixed bag for both companies. The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $119.6 million in damages -- they wanted $2.2 billion.

Google is thinking about killing off the URL. Sort of. In a new version of Google’s Chrome browser, the URL is not visible to the user. Instead, you see a Google Search box. http://www.zdnet.com/google-experimenting-with-hiding-urls-in-chrome-7000029068/

Selena Larson, we had Robert Scoble on the show Friday and we talked about the rumored death of Twitter, as well as Google+. We both concluded that neither social network is dying. Also on Friday, you wrote an interesting piece on the future of Twitter. In that post you said that Twitter needs to radically change in order to transform it into something for the masses. http://readwrite.com/2014/05/02/twiter-town-square-companion-evolution#awesm=~oDp5FuPhme7V4R

.

Q: How does Twitter need to change, in your opinion?
Q: Do you think Twitter is growing fast enough?
Q: You wrote that people are aware of Twitter, they just don’t know how—or why—they should use it. Is “Facebookification,” as you call it, the answer?
Q: Why does Twitter, with all its mass-media exposure, still have an identity problem?

You may have heard a story in circulation about upcoming Apple headphones called “EarPods” that had integrated heart rate and blood pressure sensors. The story was covered widely not only in the tech press, but also in mainstream newspapers and network TV news programs. Well, it turns out the story was fake. Sarah Perez at TechCrunch is reporting this morning that the story originated with someone who posted it as a joke on the anonymous app Secret. http://techcrunch.com/2014/05/05/surprise-that-wild-rumor-about-apple-earpods-with-biometrics-sensors-was-a-fake/
